A Presidential Psychopath

“A psychopath is defined as having no concern for the feelings of others & a complete disregard for any sense of social obligation. They seem egocentric and lacking insight and any sense of responsibility or consequence. Their emotions are thought to be superficial and shallow, if they exist at all. They are considered callous, manipulative and incapable of forming lasting relationships, let alone of any kind of love. It is thought that any emotions which the true psychopath exhibits are the fruits of watching and mimicking other people’s emotions. They show poor impulse control and a low tolerance for frustration and aggression. They have no empathy, remorse, anxiety or guilt in relation to their behavior. In short, they truly are devoid of conscience. Psychopaths also have a markedly distorted sense of the potential consequences of their actions, not only for others, but also for themselves. They do not, for example, deeply recognize the risk of being caught, disbelieved or injured as a result of their behaviour.”

SQL Server

Agent Alerts Not Configured – Brent Ozar Unlimited®

Here is Brent Ozar’s script to add important alerts: via Agent Alerts Not Configured – Brent Ozar Unlimited®

The below script sets up SQL Server Agent alerts for severity 16 through 25 as well as specific alerts for 823, 824 and 825 errors.  Do a search & replace in this code and change ‘The DBA Team’ to the name of your SQL Agent operator – and remember, always use email distribution lists for your operator emails, not individual peoples’ emails.  Someday – you’re going to go on vacation, and you want other people to get notified when you’re gone.
